Much of Hiroshima has been reconstructed since the 1945 atomic bombing; few buildings of historical and/or cultural interest remain intact. An exception, along with Mitaki and Fudoin Temples, is Itsukushima Shrine on nearby Miyajima island. Suspended over the blue waters of the Seto Inland Sea, Itsukushima Shrine is traditional, Shinto Japan at its best, blending unique architecture with the natural environment to create an aesthetic-and spiritual-whole. Its vermilion torii
gate standing in the sea is a national treasure.
